2001 Ford Windstar LX 3dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Thats right I got almost 186,000 miles on my van.I won't bore you with details but I got maybe about $600 in mechanical maintenance in it.Also Needed the usual stuff (brakes ,oil changes,tires).I can tell you this much, the biggest secret that I learned from my brotherinlaw is change the transmission fluids early .These ford transmissions are delicate, needless to say I have changed the transmission fluid twice and thinking about doing it again(Yup Original Trans).It did need a small map sensor ($60) and a coil pack I think they are about $80.It has yet to get a wheel alignment still drives straight .I drive this car all over united states and I haul heavy car parts with it !

Favorite Features

Powerful engine, good gas mpg (about 25 no load highway, heavy load still 20 mpg!) fantastic ice cold air, comfortable ride, bought at 56,000 miles and still going at 186,000 miles

Suggested Improvements

Odd electrical glitches on dash board come and go like the wind. White paint defective and chips easily avoid White. Heavy seats to take in and out.
